DAFTEHAUS brings together Chicago’s creatives

The Chicago scene, musically and otherwise, has grown exponentially over the past few years. One of the aspects most associated with that growth has been the city’s creative propensity to work together, spawning projects and collaborations across the board that have raised the overall perception of Chicago from a national standpoint. Friday, Windy City trendsetters My Morning After and Kake continue that pattern with #DAFTEHAUS, a collective event, a culmination of art across all platforms curated by the pair of Chicago start-ups. The event features performances by Probcause, Misfits and Outcasts, Darius D-Win Windfield and Shannon Hayden along with DJ sets by DJ Posedown, DJ Cachet and DJ Alissa.jo. Joining the party will be artists, including Mauricio Ramirez, Jasmine G Petersen, Anders Lndsth, Marco Antonio Miller and Bigshot Robot. The first in a series of similar shows, according to KAKE owner Kellen Winters, “My Morning After and myself really have a passion for the concept of collectivity. I think a lot of times the world can become competitive and segmented, which to me, is counterproductive. With #DAFTEHAUS, we wanted to fuse everyone’s talents to create something that is universally palatable and dope.” Added My Morning After head honcho Flow Johnson; “I’ve got a lot of friends whom are really great artists and I always want to do a show for them.  But its difficult to choose who you want to showcase and i hate feeling like im excluding anyone. So I’ve been developing ways to combine mediums into one show.  So reaching out to different artists, putting them in the same room and all of us bouncing ideas off of each other until something great happens.”
